Let me capture your spark!
Romance, for real
Whether it's for a proposal, an anniversary, a birthday present or simply to have a few images of yourselves to cherish - you're in the right place!
I know it can be daunting to have to "pose" for a stranger - but this is not what we'll be doing.
By inviting me in your bubble, you'll also open the door to authentic moments - and the more you forget about me, the better the images!
Goodbye awkward poses!
Joyful chaos, that's the goal - let's dodge the stiff, uncomfortable smiles by planning one or a few activities for our shoot!
You know your partner better than anyone, but if the creative juices ain't flowin', check out these ideas below.
sports like football, basketball, bike riding, rollers, obstacle course racing, tree climbing, kayaking
going for a little walk/hike somewhere pretty
going on a little boat trip (even on pedal-boats!) and having a dip in the lake
fruit/veggie picking, gardening
setting up a camping spot (and actually camping after the shoot!), with marshmallow grilling, picnic, barbecue, outdoor movie night - and lots of stringlights!
visiting a street fair / luna park
flowers (or petals only!)
snacks (icecream, popcorn, ... )
a little love note / vow to read and exchange during the shoot, and remember who you fell in love with!
baking cookies or cakes
cooking (pizza is always a winner!)
sports indoors: table football, obstacle course, balloon fight, pillow fight
games, karaoke, charades
painting / arts and crafts of all kinds
carving pumpkins (in autumn)
decorating the house and tree (approaching Christmas)
Even day-to-day moments have their charm! How about:
diner (up to doing the dishes together!)
laundry folding (you'd be surprised how fun that can turn out to be!)
tea and biscuits (by the chimney is a plus!)
Although it might not be the most intuitively "photogenic" setups, these might be the photos you'll be the most fond of, showcasing the simple moments of this chapter of your life!
Plotting surprises is one of my favorite things to do!
There's two ways we can go about this:
1) I hide in the bushes or somewhere discreet, so your partner won't suspect anything while I capture the big moment from a distance - thus giving you full intimacy.
After your emotional rollercoaster I'll come out and we'll take a few more pictures together and celebrate!
2) You surprise your soulmate by proposing during a "regular photoshoot". By defining a little sign between us ahead of time you'll be able to cue me in when the moment is coming!
Whichever approach, I can help plan this surprise by advising you on location, timing, setting etc. to make sure the moment is as picturesque as possible!
And after the shoot?
I'll retouch the images (light, color, contrast, crops, etc.) and send them via a private gallery link - about 3 weeks after the shoot - where you'll be able to download them directly in high definition.
Unlike portrait sessions, there is no set amount of pictures. The gallery will include all good images from the session! Having to choose and define a specific set of pictures would be too heartbreaking of a process, for both you and me.
I always want to include them all - so that's what I do!
Let's snap it!
Feel free to submit a booking request indicating what you have in mind and which package would suit you best - everything's customisable! Don't forget to tell me a little bit about you and your partner!
From here on, we'll discuss the planning/mood for the shoot and organise all the little logistical details :)
Clothes-wise, I always recommend wearing something comfortable and avoiding bright colors and patterns.
I'm also happy to hop on a quick call to get to know each other prior to the shoot! Although not mandatory, I find that establishing a connection from the beginning helps us all in knowing what to expect on the big day!
Finally, to fully book and secure your shoot, a 50% downpayment is required to confirm and book the date. The remaining 50% are to be processed prior to image delivery.

What couples think!
Christelle & Mehdi
"Being a rather shy and uncomfortable person with the idea of being photographed, I liked that Elo knew how to put my girlfriend and myself at ease. Very professional and super sociable, I recommend this photographer 100%! You have the choice of location and personalised advice, really the best! The photos are superb, enough to have beautiful memories!
Ariana & Mike
"My husband and I had a photo shoot with Elo while on holiday in Barcelona. It was our three year wedding anniversary recently and we had a wonderful experience with Elo. She really took the time to select perfect locations that we could walk to during the time of our shoot. She really went above and beyond and we are so happy with out photos. She is so talented and also made us feel super comfortable and we would definitely 100% recommend her."
